Moon Cake!


At mid-autumn festival, it’s a tradition to give people moon cakes. I’m not sure I know anyone who really loves moon cakes. Many people eat them. It’s a tradition, but I’m not sure anyone really likes eating them. I’m probably wrong about this.

Anyway, none of our kids enjoy eating them; that’s for sure! Asher probably likes them less than anyone.

This year we made him a moon cake that he was sure to like for his birthday. And he did.

By the way, “moon cake” probably isn’t the best translation of this word. The Chinese word is 月饼. 月 means moon. So far so good. However, 饼 means cookie or biscuit. Based on the shape and Chinese word, we should all start calling them moon biscuits!
